Dillian Whyte Angry, Says He Feels "Betrayed" By The WBC

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte (23-1, 17 KOs) was under the impression that he was going to receive a mandatory world title shot against WBC beltholder Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).

Whyte was shocked a few days ago, when the sanctioning body ordered him to take part in a final eliminator and deemed that Dominic Breazeale is the mandatory challenger to the belt.

Despite holding the number one ranking for some time, and winning the WBC silver title, Whyte was ordered to fight Cuban heavyweight Luis Ortiz.

Breazeale apparently beat Eric Molina in what the WBC tabbed as a final eliminator last November.

Whyte is slated to return to the ring in July.

He says the WBC, if they wanted to order a final eliminator, should have made him fight Breazeale.

Instead, it appears that Breazeale will likely fight Wilder in the summer - if a deal is not reached between Wilder and unified champion Anthony Joshua.

"I've fought for every single belt the WBC said I was eligible for. I'm one of the only guys in the WBC who has followed the proper procedure. I fought many eliminators, and many WBC ranking fights. I've been loyal to the WBC for about two years," Whyte told Sky Sports.

"I've had the sanctioning fights, I've done everything they have asked me to do. My information was - I was meant to be next in line. If anything, the WBC should be ordering me and Breazeale to fight in a final eliminator to face Wilder.

"I've had loads of WBC fights and they've always been against top contenders. [Dereck] Chisora, Helenius, Browne. These haven't been against mugs, they have been against top contenders, who are highly ranked in the WBC as well. We're going to try and see what we can do, and see whether or not we can reach some sort of agreement with the WBC. I'm very, very disappointed and annoyed. I feel betrayed by the WBC to be honest."

Whyte has no need to fight Ortiz. Just stay in line for Joshua rematch and fight bums.

This Whyte hype started when he beat Chisora by SPLIT decision. I just think that Whyte knows he is not very good and that he can likely lose against Ortiz.
